The Review
Feedback summary: 

Having them on board has produced several new clients that would’ve been lost by not attending them after business hours. These jobs yield a remarkable ROI for AMBS’ services. The best thing about working with them is that their whole team knows the business and is on the same page.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the VP of a full-service floor covering store for commercial and residential customers. We offer sales and installation of flooring, countertops, window treatments, area rugs, carpet cleaning, wood refinishing, and 24-hour water restoration.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AMBS Call Center?

We needed to provide immediate responses for our 24-hour water emergency customers. We didn’t want them to just leave a message and hope for a response.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted our customers to be greeted by a live person that can take their requests and direct the call to the appropriate person depending on the issue.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I heard about them from the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce. They offered a solution that was very affordable.

Describe the project in detail.

They set up our telephone system to forward the calls that come in after hours to their office. They walked us through a set of questions and designed a process flowchart depending on the customers’ answers to the questions. We tested the process for a month and then readjusted as needed.

What was the team composition?

We’ve interacted with their sales team, technical team, and the phone operators, all of which seem to be well-trained and on the same page.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Within the first month, we were able to book jobs that we would have lost otherwise, which has more than paid for years of their monthly price.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They’re very professional and prompt. We get a consistent service from all their members.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The level of training for each employee is remarkable. Everyone that we speak to seems to have been briefed on our business, which is important for serving our needs. Their price is also impressive. There’s no way we could replicate what they do for what they charge. One client that calls after hours pays for an entire month of their services.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No. AMBS works exactly as promised and delivers a consistently professional service every time.

I'm the chief sales officer at ERA Reardon Realty, with eight offices serving Southern Michigan.

We hired them for after-hours, weekend, and holiday call coverage. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted our after-hours leads to be answered by a live person to boost conversions.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

AMBS Call Center is local, and its owners are active in the business community.

Describe the project in detail.

They provide call coverage for three offices from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. They work Monday through Friday, plus weekends and holidays. They forward calls and leads to around 45 of our agents. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

I love that callers get a personal greeting with our company name. It prevents frustration among people who don't want to end up in a voice mailbox. Their scripts are excellent, so all callers get the same experience. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It's excellent. We modify scripts and call flows as situations evolve.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciate their personal service. We can always review results, give feedback, and modify services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Why does your firm need inbound services? Did you previously handle these needs in-house?

We handle about 250 calls per day.

What challenge were you trying to address with the service provider?

Ambs Call Center is a well-known company and has the services we need to foster a more engaging experience for our customers.

They process our orders and answer our calls.
